PEORIA, AZ (CBS5) -

A Peoria man was arrested Monday on suspicion of molesting a 10-year-old over a five-month period, Maricopa County sheriff's deputies said.

Anthony Auston was booked into jail on five count of child molestation, two counts of sexual conduct and one count of sexual abuse.

Several encounters occurred while the girl was asleep and the last encounter occurred two weeks ago, said MCSO spokesman Deputy Joaquin Enriquez.

The girl told her grandmother about the alleged incidents and she then called the sheriff's office, Enriquez said. 

Sheriff's investigators said Auston to them he never threatened the girl but did encourage her to keep quiet about the encounters.
